Polaris’s new bib shorts for women combine waistband-less comfort with bathroom-break convenience, using zips either side to undo the shorts from the bib, leaving them attached just at the front.
- Highs: Value, comfort, convenience
- Lows: Zips/backpack combo
The zips can irritate if you’re carrying a backpack, but otherwise these are very impressive, especially considering how the price stacks up next to the likes of Rapha’s Women’s Classics.
The seams are all flatlock stitched, the pad is a good density and comfortable, despite a bit of creasing in the middle, and the straps are a lightweight mesh with a gap at the rear for extra ventilation.
